    I was looking at pilot bearings for my 96 5-speed and see FarPP has two listed an A code and a B code suffixes. Anyone know the difference? Also, is the FRPP still considered by most to be the best pilot and TO bearings?

    TIA

    Thanks for the info. I have heard the FRPP bearings are best, but wanted to be certain that had not changed to any great degree. The more things get contracted to China, the harder it is to find good parts.

    I'd still like to know what the difference is between the M7600A and M7600B pilot bearings. There has to be some difference, or there would not be two different numbers

    The M7600A is for 79-95 5 speed cars. The 7600B is for 96+ 5 speeds. That's the difference, I ran the part #s.

    Thanks for the information. Not clear the way they're described in LMR or AM.
